R-Willy Looks to Prove He’s Ready for X Games on a Mega Ramp

March 6, 2018

We’re obviously a little biased in thinking that Ryan “R-Willy” Williams deserves a shot at the X Games. The scooter and BMX star has earned three wins (including two in BMX) at the Nitro World Games in two years and has scores of World Firsts to his name. R-Willy may be one of the most exciting BMX riders out there, but he’s still waiting for a shot at X Games. One possible reason is that his path has not been the same as most pro BMX riders. He’s a scooter to BMX convert who achieved his renown performing for Nitro Circus, not in competition. In a recent edit, R-Willy admits it’s been a touchy subject for him in the past, but he has since changed his thinking. He may have proved he’s an an up-and-comer in big air BMX, but he still has to show he’s a threat in X Games’ format. To do that, he needs to prove he can handle the X Games ramp setup, which includes a massive quarter pipe. Here’s the start of R-Willy making his case:
